GM is clueless as always. The only people that want these cars are men

under 25 - which cannot afford them, and rich old men who have better 
things to spend their money on - like viagra and a mistress. Everyone 
else is looking for something that doesn't cost $0.20/mile to drive.

And they wonder why sales are slow? GM desperately needs to split into
2 
companies, a bankrupt pention/financing company (99% of the company), 
and the 7 employees that make realistic cars for the real world.

But I'm not worried, I'm sure those 7 people were already fired and
took 
jobs in Asia ;)
